i ve been seeing many images  on adobe from the royal wedding so i am guessing adobe takes editorial? or the pics needs to be commercial free.if i post a part of an architectural building like windows of some bank for eg are they gonna reject it couse the photo  needs to be ed?
and my second question is the title caption.first you write the title of the image and then the caption? or you only write the title .i got some rejections lately and i am guessing if maybe  that was that reason that i didnt write the caption or the title.

I think they take editorial material from other agencies, they dont take it from regular adobe submissions.

Yup, waiting, but I won't hold my breath. There are so many legal complications with editorial (which is my main market) and Adobe is more artistic and design oriented. I'd love it if they took editorial news from contributors. Just look at the market? Getty is the place for Editorial and News, except when they block us from contributing or competition. Adobe is design and arts oriented. SS won't take anything public domain, but Adobe will and so will IS.

Pick your best matching places, don't expect them all to be everything to all of us.

I understand their reluctance to embrace editorial content where people are the main subject (paparazzi conduct is often problematic).  I hope they allow contributors to submit editorial travel shots (where the place is the main subject) and illustrative editorial object shots in the near future.

Credentialed, authorized, news media shots, would be nice also. Yes, Illustrative Editorial could also be useful for Adobe customers.

I think they are staying away from citizen journalist shots, where everything with no release gets labeled as editorial. And also the control over use after the download. Just a kettle of legal headaches.

Just a kettle of legal headaches.

Uncle Pete - Why do you think editorial is a kettle of legal headaches? My understanding is that maybe it is - but not likely for the contributor or the agency.

The legal headache may come in with the the end user/buyer though.

I shoot picture of something in a public place - say a demonstration or an event. No harm there.
I upload it to an agency and they make it available as an editorial image only. No harm there either.
The agency sells usage rights for that image that is my copyright. Still no harm there.

Seems to me the only complication thereafter comes in when the buyer uses is for a purpose for which it was not intended. If they stick to the "editorial only" instruction clearly labeled on the box, there should be no problem.

Newspaper uses picture to accompany a story about demonstrations in general - no problem.

Newspaper uses picture of clearly identifiable individuals to accompany a story about muslim radical extremists. Picture in agency is clearly captioned to be that of Sikhs peacefully demonstrating that Americans can't tell the difference between their faith and Islam. Big problem . . . for the newspaper that is.

Ad agency uses the picture with people in it for a campaign - possible problem if they kick up a fuss.

The point is that if there is a legal issue, it's not likely to be a legal issue for the agency or the contributor - it's the end user that need to be aware of what an editorial image is and how it can or cannot be used.
